Josh Hartnett Told By Doc To Give Up Vegetarian Diet

A few weeks ago we told you about Travis Barker’s decision to give up his vegetarian diet after doctor’s told him he would “heal faster” from his terrible plane accident by eating meat. Now, it appears that Josh Hartnett was given similar advice — and dropped his veggie ways — after falling ill during filming of The Black Dahlia in 2006.

He explains, “I was shooting a movie in Bulgaria called ‘The Black Dahlia’ and I was boxing for it. I was kind of anemic because I wasn’t eating very much and I was working out all the time. So I went to the doctors to see what he could do.

“He said to me, ‘Do you eat meat?’ When I said no, he told me, ‘You need to eat meat.’ So that was kind of it!”

A vegetarian since the age of 12, Hartnett said it wasn’t that difficult for him to go back to the eating meat. He added, “It wasn’t hard at all – it’s actually pretty good stuff.”

Wow — we’ve seen some pretty fit vegetarians on this site; from the buff star of The Dark Knight, actor Christian Bale, to Ultimate FIghting Champion, vegan Mac Danzig. To say that Hartnett wasn’t getting the results he was looking for because he wasn’t eating meat sounds like BS.
